Assuming gnome and F8: System->Preferences->Hardware->Removable Drives and Media, Multimedia tab, uncheck Play video DVD discs when inserted. You will probably have to logout and back in again, in order for it to take effect.

I'm using Fedora9. Sys->Pref->Hardware-> ...there is no Removable Drives and Media option over there ! Just the following options are available:
Default Printer; Keyboard; Mouse; PalmOS Devices; Screen Resolution; Sound; Volume Control.

have you tried editing the menu .Maybe a check box is not checked.
r-click on Applications and select edit
and look for "Removable Drives and Media"
and if there put a check in it .
--------------------
also posting what you have done already would be very helpful

Well all I did was after installing Fedora when I inserted a DVD in the drive totem automatically started and a dialog box appeared with a check box option asking if I wanted totem to start by default whenever a DVD is inserted which at that time I checked.
Now I don't want totem to start but don't know how to disable it!

you could do this
open a terminal and run
Code:
gnome-volume-properties
that should open "Removable Drives and Media"

if not then see about renaming
~.gnome2/Totem/xine_config
to
~.gnome2/Totem/xine_config.backup
and restart totem

Is there some specific path I need to give for this command because I'm getting "command not found".
Quote:
[awm@localhost ~]$ gnome-volume-properties
bash: gnome-volume-properties: command not found
Ok. I have found out how to disable totem. Its in the Nautilius File Manager window. Open a Nautilius file browser window and then Edit -> Preferences -> Media. Where I have the option to control what happens when I insert any media CD/DVD.

But now I am hung up on finding out why I do not have Removable Drives and Media Preferences. Any ideas?
